Spink, Skabootch and Swipes – Wednesday and Friday Mornings
Free 30-minute plays featuring apprentice actors from the Flat Rock Playhouse Vagabond School of the Drama. Performances are held rain or shine, at the new park amphitheater near the front lake. Take a journey with Sandburg’s daughters, Spink, Skabootch and Swipes (his loving nicknames for them) on a journey through Rootabaga Country. Discover how the letter X made its way in the alphabet, hit the rails with the Great Golden Spike Limited as it speeds from coast to coast and marvel at how Hot Balloons and his two pigeon daughters crossed the Shampoo River!
Young visitors can earn the new “Rootabaga Ranger” badge by completing an activity sheet after the play.
These shows are supported by the Flat Rock Playhouse and the park’s non-profit bookstore partner, Eastern National.
